Location: St. Gaudens, Cornish, NH
Registration Fee: $525 (2 graduate credits available for additional fee)
Day 1: The Civil War in Myth and Memory. What messages do monuments send? Why were Civil War monuments erected and how do the layered messages from the past impact society today? We will use monuments at St. Gaudens as a case study and hear from one teacher about how her high school students have wrestled with these questions.
Days 2 & 3: Learn how to develop a Project Based Learning unit on researching Civil War soldiers. We will investigate a graveyard, learn how to find primary sources online and in your community, and discuss creative ways for students to share their projects with the community. Considerable time will be available for individual work-time.
